About the Speaker

Mike Tobias Sr. started cabling for computers in 1983 when coaxial cable carried network data. Along the way, Mike encountered the same kinds of firewall issues cable installers face today and out of sheer desperation for something that worked, he began to invent firestop products. Two of his original inventions, the Smooth Firestop Sleeve and the Split Sleeve Firestop System were issued patents and became the prototypes for most of the competitive firestop sleeves on the market today.

Firestopping by the Numbers

Professionals in the ITS industry (designers, specifiers, installers, etc.) must know more than firestopping theory for very good reasons. If a mission-critical building experiences a fire resulting in loss of life or property, the facility professionals involved in firestopping design or installation may be liable. This session outlines a six-step process developed from hundreds of projects and meetings with architects, designers, engineers, inspectors, installers, and project managers that avoids issues and establishes a standard operating procedure for selecting and installing firestop systems from a wide array of manufacturers and systems.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to select, acquire and plan system installations
2. Understand how to establish hourly wall ratings
3. Analyze the role of Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ)
4. Examine how to digitally document a firestop system
